When you drive by, you will notice that our playgrounds to not contain large plastic play structures. There is a reason for this! We use a natural playground design to benefit the development of every child. Current research shows that children are more active in natural spaces and creativity is boosted.
Our Hampshire location was awarded with a grant from ECHO to add more natural structures to our playgrounds, our plan is to slowly implement these ideas at our Riverside location as well. With the help of The National Wildlife Federation and Sarah Konrodi we are working towards our goals. Listen to her TEDTALK below to learn more!
Our Goal at Little Bear's Childcare is to leave each child with a lasting appreciation for the outdoors, nature and all her wonders!
